Diabetes affects women of all life stages. According to the CDC, about 1.85 million women, in the US, of reproductive age (18-44 years) have diabetes. If not managed properly, expectant mothers with diabetes are more likely to encounter complications such as preeclampsia, birth defects, other health problems, and infections. Balancing Pregnancy with Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby, is a down to earth guide for diabetic mothers-to-be. The book explains everything from what is diabetes to labor, delivery, and infertility. Unlike existing books written in dry scientific language, this is a unique patient-written guidebook that includes medical facts, first person reports, and interviews from women living with diabetes who share their pregnancy related experiences. Topics covered include:

What is Diabetes?
